I have many scans for complete books from war time era. Where can I upload them?

Hi! We would love to have comic books from WWII, however I'm concerned about rights issues. Are these books out of copyright, or do you have the rights associated to upload them?

That aside, we are in the middle of some major upgrades to our book contribution process. In the past, a user could only upload a URL to a book that they hosted (not very useful, eh?). But now we are making it so that users can upload their own books in various formats.

Feel free to email info@archive.org if you are having trouble uploading things. We are certainly interested in this collection!

I'd be very interested in how best to determine who owns the rights to comic books from the '30s and '40s. Obviously DC, Marvel, Archie and EC retain rights to their back catalogues, but what about defunct publishers such as Fox, Centaur, Nedor and others? I've been scanning my old comics since 1999, but am unsure about the legality of posting.
Do I need to retain an attorney to find out?

Hrm. This is a tough one. We don't have any copyright experts on staff, and we rely on the uploader's statement that they have the rights associated with the file. Feel free to contact info@archive.org with more specifics, and you will be forwarded to the Collections Director who can give you a better answer. I'd personally love to see some graphic novels and comic books in our text collection, though!

I'd really be interested in these scans. I'm working on a video project for school set in that era about comics.

Why is the page I uploaded not available?
